Press Statement on the Ghar Wapsi Program
Jan. 8, 2015
Oswald Cardinal Gracias Archbishop of Bombay would like to categorically state that there is no forced conversion within the Catholic Church in India. The Ghar Wapsi Program seems to itself have elements of ‘forced re - conversion”. We strongly disapprove of any attempts to disrupt the peace among communities by such programs which do not help anyone. Some reported cases of “Ghar Wapsi” seem to be orchestrated and cause anxiety in the minds of the minority communities and threaten to disturb the integrity and harmony of our country.
